    I've researched online methods for upgrading the 256 MB DDR2 RAM on the AppleTV's board. I realize this may be a difficult task and that upgrading the RAM means I may need another serial EPROM with updated information about RAM size. It could be more of a problem than actually soldering new chips on board.

    Has anyone done this or heard about doing this? I have OS X 10.5.8 running on it and the stats on the system run well aside from the 256MB RAM. The nVidia graphics isn't bad and the 1gHtz processor isn't terrible. I'd like to get more RAM to load up Netflix streaming and such.

    Any thoughts? THANKS!
